Hello my stunning ladies,
Belated Holi wishes from my side and I hope all of you had a great time splashing colors. With all the color in the air and life, I thought of adding some special color on my lips as well. So here I’m today with a review on a much talked about shade from MAC, “PARTY PARROT”.
About MAC Matte Lipstick Party Parrot:
“A color collection inspired by a rare bird that has always been ahead of her time, Mrs. Iris Apfel. Subject of her own exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and larger-than-life star, Apfel boldly mixed flea market finds with haute couture decades before doing it was considered de rigueur. M·A·C presents Lipsticks, Beauty Powder and Eye Shadows with as much fabulous flair and joie de vivre as the woman who helped create it. It is re-promoted with the Strength Collection.”
PARTY PARROT is described as a bright red pink.
Packaging: Being a limited edition lipstick, I expected a different packaging. But it comes in the same black n silver bullet case.
Shade: It is a super stunning shade from MAC’s “The Strength” collection. It is a vivid reddish pink. Sometimes it looks neonish when layered, but otherwise it is sexy screaming coral on me (Hope I made it clear..!!). It is such a happy shade and makes the face look so full of fun and energy even on the bluest of blue days.
Texture: Though belonging to MAC matte range, it is not as much drying as other MAC mattes I have (read Ruby Woo, Flat out fabulous, All fired Up). It glides smoothly on lips, and settles into a semi matte finish after few minutes.
Pigmentation: It is MAC, it is Matte..It is insanely pigmented. It gives a strong, vibrant, opaque color in just one swipe.
Staying Power: It stayed on me for 6hours with drinks and snacks in between. After that it leaves a pretty pink tint which stays for another 1-2 hours.
SUMMING UP MY “LIKES” and “DISLIKES” :-
What I Like about MAC Matte Lipstick Party Parrot :
- A bright punchy shade
- A sexy bold mix of red and pink.
- Limited edition, yet the regular price.
- Matte, yet not over drying.
- Soft buttery texture.
- Glides smoothly on lips.
- Awesomely pigmented.
- Covers lip pigmentations.
- Doesn’t bleed.
- Doesn’t transfer much.
- Stays long.
- Signature vanilla fragrance.
- Sturdy packaging.
What I Don’t Like about MAC Matte Lipstick Party Parrot :
- The packaging. I expected it to be different
- Ladies with dry lips should exfoliate lips and apply lip balm prior application.
- Availability. It vanishes from the stores within seconds.
Would I repurchase MAC Matte Lipstick Party Parrot ?
Yes, (if I’m lucky enough for the second time to get hold of this).
Would I recommend MAC Matte Lipstick Party Parrot to others?
Mac, dear MAC…please make it a permanent shade instead of a few and then making everyone go crazy to find it for months. I know how my friends make calls after calls, and trips after trips to the MAC store for getting this. They don’t really wait for my recommendations.
Final thoughts on MAC Matte Lipstick Party Parrot :
It is a breathtaking gorgeous blazing coral, pretty unique too. People claim that Party Parrot is close to Impassioned. I have both, and love them to the core. Impassioned is pretty pink on me and Party Parrot is blazing coral. They look totally different. The matte finish this gives is great too. I love how I get compliment whenever I put it on. So I found this worth buying.
Welcome the summer with this vibrant, exotic pop of color.
Rating: A punchy 5 out of 5…
